Newer anime suggestions.

I've been really behind on anime for the past year. I'm looking for some suggestions for newer animes that have been released in the 2008-2010 range. I'm mostly interested in romance, but comedy/romance or action/romance, etc suggestions are welcomed. I've only watched 'Kaichou wa Maid-sama' recently and am loving it so far! Thank you.

Cross Game, stat. Easily the best series of the last 18 months. It's not a classic romance, but transcends the genre.

Welcome to AS...
I suggest you look here, and here since there are already places on the forum for this.
Are you looking for a specific kind of storyline, plot, animation style etc...?

Yes indeed. One needs more Cross Game in one's life.

Kimi ni Todoke is cute. You will enjoy watching it, but not as much Angel Beats, IMO. You have to watch them really.

Cross Game - I need more

CrossGame definitely

KimiNiTodoke, if shoujo is okay. Pure and innocent as fresh spring water.

B Gata H Kei for a slightly naughty romantic comedy (better than the premise makes you think it will be).

Sora no Manimani is the only other romance I can really think of that I saw and thought was half way decent.

However, out of the new anime that just started this season you should check out:

The World God Only Knows (great source material).

and maybe Otome Youkai Zakuro (no idea about this one but the first two episode were okay).

Cross Game - A Story of Love, Life, Death - and Baseball. What more could you want?

I second Angel Beats! which is funny and beautifully made.

Also, Shiki, the new zombie anime is worth checking out. Unfortunately, it's on break until November, though.

Rainbow: Nisha Rokubō no Shichinin (An older manga, but new anime) and Highschool of the Dead (About zombies, too) are just as amazing as well.

Here are a few...
  • Arakawa Under the Bridge - Romance comedy, more comedy (really funny). Second season airing now.
  • Bakemonogatari - just plain awesome on all fronts.
  • Cross Game - as mentioned, great series. I thought it focused too much on the sports, but I'm not a big sports fan.
  • Durarara!! - great mystery and drama. You'll love the characters too.
  • Eden of the East - one of the best of recent years. Great premise and the production is excellent.
  • White Album - romance drama that I loved. It's a love or hate series but worth a look at by every romance fan.

Seconding Angel Beats!, Arakawa Under the Bridge, Durarara!!, Higashi no Eden, and Bakemonogatari. Would also like to add CLANNAD and its second season, WORKING!!, Toradora!, ef - a tale of memories and its second season (although the first season aired in 2007), Macross Frontier, Nodame Cantabile (first season aired in 2007), Spice and Wolf, Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi, Katanagatari, and true tears.
